There has been a significant rise in interest in “men’s health” over the past several years. In addition, attention to men’s health clinics has increased with promotion in traditional and Internet-based media. Mainstream medical organizations such as the American Urological Association and the American Society of Andrology have highlighted men’s health at their annual meetings, with the former even sponsoring the formation of the American Society of Men’s Health. Why all the interest, what is “men’s health,” and is this good for men? It seems commonly accepted that men in general are less likely than women to seek health services.
